SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) – It’s been a long 15 months since lockdowns were first put in place across the Bay Area and today, as the state moves into a new phase of pandemic living, KRON4 is taking a look back at all we’ve endured since March of 2020.

No masks for vaccinated people, no more physical distancing and no more capacity limits — The removal of nearly all pandemic-related restrictions in California has been a long time coming.

March 16, 2020, was the day six Bay Area counties took drastic measures to try and contain the coronavirus.

Here at KRON4, social distancing had begun. As we separated our anchors on set and moved our meteorologists and reporters to report from home, bars and gyms, movie theaters and restaurant doors were shuttered, as millions across the country were ordered to shelter in place.
